Our pomegranate wine is so popular that we decided to make a champagne out of it! We start with fermenting pomegranate juice from pomegranates grown 70 miles from Casa de Fruta in Madera, CA. Then we put it thought the champagne process. It's sweet yet tart, it's bubbly and it's wonderful. This is the first year it is in a flint (clear) bottle.
White in spite of its name, this vintage French Grower Champagne is a 50/50 blend of Pinot and Chardonnay grapes assembled only in exceptional years. Balanced, fragrant, structured and long in the mouth; a real delight!

With over 70 acres of vineyards, award winning wines are the product from the grapes we grow.

Due to the diverse terrain, rich soil, and unique micro-climate in Temecula, the grapes produce wonderfully year after year. The warm summer days, and cool evenings are the perfect growing environment for both red and white varietals. Most notable is the hands on approach to farming the Wilson family has embraced, using man power to do most of the work.
2008 Iron Horse Vineyards Russian River Valley Rose Brut Sparkling Wine 750 mL
Manufacturer: Iron Horse Vineyards
Brand: Iron Horse Vineyards
The 2008 Brut Rosé is the most vivid and bold of our Sparklings, both in terms of flavor and color. Made mostly from Pinot Noir, the 2008 vintage is bright, full, quite dry with a soft, almost creamy mouthfeel. The gorgeous color comes from letting the Pinot Noir sit on the skins. This vintage is aged four plus years en tirage. Hand harvested in the chill of early morning our Pinot Noir grapes are de-stemmed into stainless steel tanks where they are cold-soaked (using dry ice) for seven days. We blend in steely Chardonnay to add a firm acid backbone. After pressing the juice slowly ferments in stainless steel tanks at 62° to 65° f retaining the bright fresh Pinot Noir fruit tones. The dosage for the 2008 Brut Rosé is a 26 ml of 2012 Rued Chardonnay LEX (24 Brix)
